Jewelry made from 875 gold is typically more valuable than jewelry made from lower-karat gold alloys, such as 8, 9 or 10 karat.

The hallmarking standards for gold jewelry can vary by country. For example, in the United Kingdom, gold jewelry must be hallmarked by an independent assay office to ensure its purity.
